With offices in San Diego, San Francisco, Atlanta and Orlando, Douglas Wilson Companies’ expanding hospitality client roster contains several high-end developments. Reinders will oversee and manage the company’s hospitality projects around the country, including the recent court-appointed receivership of the historic Wigwam Golf & Resort Spa in Phoenix.
“Reint has impeccable industry credentials and tremendous leadership and management experiences that will greatly enhance our capacity to serve hospitality clients,” said Robert Richley, president of the diversified real estate services and development firm.
Reinders’ distinguished career includes a 21-year stint with Marriott Hotels & Resorts and, most recently, a 15-year tenure as CEO of the San Diego Convention & Visitors Bureau. There, he implemented a $16 million annual budget and won numerous awards for promoting the attraction-rich region as a national and international tourism destination.
Prior to heading up ConVis, the Netherlands native and graduate of the International Hotel School at The Hague was general manager of several top-performing Southern California properties, including Marriott Hotels in La Jolla, Long Beach and Newport Beach.
“I’m thrilled to join the professional team at Douglas Wilson and to further its goals of providing a wide range of problem resolution and asset management services to the hospitality sector,” said Reinders, whose previously managed hotels consistently performed in the top of their region in both guest satisfaction as well as financial results.
Company founder and CEO Douglas Wilson said bringing the seasoned hospitality industry executive on board is in direct response to the growing demand for its hotel operations and resort management expertise.
“By adding Reint, our senior-level leadership has been expanded to help us accommodate the increasing need for our specialized hotel and resort workout and management services,” said Wilson, whose company has provided problem resolution for more than 500 projects involving assets valued in excess of $7.75 billion.
In today’s tough economy, he said his company is increasingly involved in managing and selling distressed real estate assets, such as golf- and ski-oriented properties Tamarack Resort in Idaho and Shanty Creek Resort in Michigan.
Douglas Wilson Companies is headquartered at 450 B Street in the financial district of downtown San Diego. For further information, call 619-641-1141 or visit www.douglaswilson.com.
